How Do You Like Your Coffee?

I consider myself a social-coffee-drinker ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes, I do not have strong addiction but I do love to have a cup of black coffee (Americano) almost daily! I also like to indulge every now and then with an espresso (LOVE my Nespresso machine)… sometimes even plain Turkish, or medium French! Other times I would just go with a latter (double shot-depending on the mood) with skim milk (or soy) and NO FOAM!

According to this diagram the way I like my latte is called FLAT WHITE!

I always go “skinny latte – no foam!”…. wonder if I ask them next time for a skinny flat white… would they get it?

How do you like your coffee and where do you usually get it/make it?

Lofat Tweets!

@LofatGroup is now active ๐Ÿ˜‰ They are giving daily health tips on both their Twitter and Facebook pages using Arabic & English

They are also asking questions on Twitter and collecting points for their followers for weekly competitions! Nice ๐Ÿ˜‰ย The questions asked are general health questions as well as info hunting of their items from their menu…

Or simple as taking a picture of whats in front of you! Fun ๐Ÿ˜‰

Don’t miss it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Nexium & Naxiprazol – UPDATE

Not too long ago, I posted about taking Naxiprazol instead of Nexium (link)!

I asked a couple of pharmacists and few doctors (from both; Government and Private Health Sectors) about it… turn out it was okay to take it!

As a matter of fact, Kuwait is known for higher prices in medications worldwide! I did not mean in anyway to show that I do not care about my health and that I wont pay more to get the real thing… if its really “the real thing”

So according to the doctors I asked, I can continue taking it… if you are planning to do so, check with your doctors too ๐Ÿ˜‰

“Us and our team has prepared a flyer for how to place the flag in a correct way. The purpose of creating this is withint these period for celebrating Kuwait 50/20, we are reviewing people placing the flag in uncorrect way @ there houses, cars and etc”

Thank you guys for your effort… lets hope they do something about the wrong flag at Jaguar Dealership in AlRai now (link)

123 Esaaf

123 esaaf is the first Arabic medical encyclopedia on the Internet.

I browsed through it a bit, and its interesting… it contains lots of info with regards to general info, diagnosis, pregnancy, first aid, Q&A, Body Atlas and much more.

My only concern is how credible this website is? Any input?


Thanks Fulla ๐Ÿ˜‰



Do you like Bananas?

Ever since we were kids, we (at home) liked “Chiquita” brand bananas! My parents would make sure to get us the ones with the Chiquita labels, and our nanny, at the time, kept all the sticker labels to cheat us when my parents would get other brands… funny thing is, we could tell it wasn’t Chiquita!

New Chiquita Labels - Funky!

Just like we can tell that the chocolate milk we’re drinking is (or isn’t) KDD! You know what I mean? Are you this way too??

Anyways, I find the below info interesting and I would like to Continue reading

Human Rights Watch – Walls at Every Turn

I was invited to attend the Human Rights Watch press conference a couple of days back to talk about their newly published report on human right abuses faced by migrant domestic workers in Kuwait, highlighting the sponsorship system in Kuwait. The representative of Human Rights Watch; Sarah Leah, Nisha Varia, and Priyanka Motaparthy talked about the topic giving brief description of the region with some stats on their organization, the problem itself, findings, problems, and suggestions. They also opened the floor for Q&A at the end.

So lets focus on Kuwait now…. All in all, Kuwait is a country with Continue reading

Corners of Passion, Brought to Life

From the strong belief and aim thatย the passion that drives their contributions and achievements is what we try to showcase here came Zawaya AlShaghaf (or corners of passion). The values of genuine interest and work, and other meanings is what they wish to celebrate!

This year they are trying to highlight the importance of not only the concept of Passion by celebrating different kinds of talents, but the concept of not judging a person by his/her colour, status or nationality through a short film. One should only be judged by the size of his/her heart and accomplishments.

โ€œI am not my colour.. I am not my status.. I AM my passionโ€

To whoever is talented and is willing to participate in one of a kind talent show, all you have to do is send an email containing a picture or a video concerning your talent on our e-mail address:ย
